city-timezones

A light and fast method of looking up timezones given the name of a city.

npm install city-timezones
var cityTimezones = require('city-timezones');

cityTimezones.lookupViaCity(city: string)

If a city is found, returns an array of possible matches with city, state, lat, lng, timezone. Returns an empty [] if nothing matches. Multiple cities can be found if they have the same name, i.e. Springfield. A U.S. based city will contain a state_ansi property which is the abbreviated form of a US State ANSI State Table

finding based on city name of Chicago (case insensitive):

const cityLookup = cityTimezones.lookupViaCity('Chicago')
console.log(cityLookup)

Will return:

[ { city: 'Chicago',
    city_ascii: 'Chicago',
    lat: 41.82999066,
    lng: -87.75005497,
    pop: 5915976,
    country: 'United States of America',
    iso2: 'US',
    iso3: 'USA',
    province: 'Illinois',
    exactCity: 'Chicago',
    exactProvince: 'IL',
    state_ansi: 'IL',
    timezone: 'America/Chicago' } ]

cityTimezones.findFromCityStateProvince(searchString: string)

This method will return any partial match for the search term based on city, province, or country, or a combination thereof. A U.S. based city will also return matches for the state_ansi property.

finding based on search term of Springfield MO

const cityLookup = cityTimezones.findFromCityStateProvince('springfield mo')
console.log(cityLookup)

Will return:

[ { city: 'Springfield',
    city_ascii: 'Springfield',
    lat: 37.18001609,
    lng: -93.31999923,
    pop: 180691,
    country: 'United States of America',
    iso2: 'US',
    iso3: 'USA',
    province: 'Missouri',
    state_ansi: 'MO',
    timezone: 'America/Chicago' } ]	

cityTimezones.cityMapping

This array will contain the full list of all available cities.

const cityMapping = cityTimezones.cityMapping
console.log(cityMapping)

Will return:

[
  {
    "city": "Qal eh-ye Now",
    "city_ascii": "Qal eh-ye",
    "lat": 34.98300013,
